Xbox Game

If it’s Tuesday, you know it’s time for the latest round of brand new Xbox One games. Whether you’re in the mood for a bit of Viking action, a tried-and-true party-based RPG or you want to take to the skies of the world (via PC only at the moment), the Microsoft Store has you covered. Check out this week’s crop of games and get playing!

Helheim Hassle is a narrative adventure game that is as much about friendship as it is about body parts. From the same universe (and set on the same Tuesday in fact) as previous hit Manual Samuel, comes this macabre adventure where you play as Bjørn, a pacifist Viking who hates the idea of dying and going to Valhalla… who then ends up dying and getting taken to Valhalla. When Bjørn is resurrected to assist with a task for the mysterious Pesto, he sees a way to negotiate his way out. Using Bjørn’s undying corpse with its ability to detach and combine limbs at will, players must solve challenging puzzles and navigate tricky levels in order to retrieve a certain magical item… In return, Pesto will try to grant Bjørn a permanent residence in Helheim – what a hassle!⠀⠀⠀
